Psalm 39:4 "Lord, make me to know my end and what is the extent of my days; Let me know how transient I am. Behold, You have made my days as handbreadths, and my lifetime as nothing in your sight..."
The father of my husband's office mate just died. Just last week, my friend's mom suddenly collapsed and died instantly also. How transient life is! However hard we work, whatever things we do, everything will come to an end. Life is too short in view of eternity that is why David asked in verse 7, "For what do I wait? My hope is in You".
For what do you wait?
OTBDS week 9
"May we seek God that when we come to die, we may feel we have lived for something; that although our hope has rested alone in what Jesus did, yet we have not made that as an excuse for doing nothing ourselves. Though we shall have no good works in which to glory, yet may we bring forth fruit that shall be for the glory of the Lord ... Let us so live that when we die, we live on...." - Charles Spurgeon
